Famitsu's most wanted leaves the Vita way behind

A quiet week for the Vita in Famitsu with only two games up for review. First is Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy (now called Operation Babel in Japan, a sequel of sorts to the huge selling Demon Gaze, which is also confirmed for a western release) grabbing a score of 8/8/8/7.

The rather non-gripping sounding Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend – Blessing Flowers manages (video) a 8/7/7/7 while the highly dodgy-sounding White Robe Love Addiction manages 8/8/7/6.


Famitsu's latest most wanted list shows the predicament the Vita is in, new model on the way or not. With no big-name games (spin-offs aside) coming, it is now struggling to create much interest among Japanese gamers, even though the Vita has a decent number of games coming out for it.

What the platform needs is one of the Japanese staple big-hitters, and no one seems to be ready to bite for a console that's approaching 4 million sales in the country. Only one of those games, and you know who I mean by that, will kick Vita sales up the arse.
